Originally introduced in metric configurations, Carmex’s Mini Tools line is now available in standard inch dimensions.

The Mini Tools line joins the Carmex Tiny Tools and Swiss-type tooling in an expanded selection of high precision, multi-function tools designed for small size applications and Swiss-type machining.

By incorporating long-reach carbide shank toolholders featuring through coolant with a selection of quick indexing coated inserts, manufacturers can accomplish high performance threading, turning, grooving, boring and chamfering in both conventional and hard materials. Threads with large pitch/profile, long thread generation and applications requiring overhang can be machined with vibration resistance and long reach, thanks to the carbide shank toolholder. Mini Tool inserts feature BLU submicron grade carbide and advanced PVD triple layer coating for high heat resistance, smooth cutting operation, and long life.

The Mini Tools line is especially useful for customers manufacturing parts with metric dimensions. The latest inch sizes were made available in response to market demand, especially among shops and manufacturers using Swiss-type machining.
